Kobe Bryant to Wear Black Mamba Snakeskin Shoes
I thought snakeskin was reserved for Chris Tucker at the tables in Vegas in Rush Hour 2, and Rico from Crocodile Dundee II since he was a Columbian dealer, not NBA players for their ballgames. But that’s what makes Kobe Bryant’s footwear for Saturday night’s contest against the Bulls especially unique. Seriously, the only time people wear animal shoes is for fashion/business purposes, and it’s like alligator as far as I know. But Kobe’s actually going to be sporting special Nikes that have snakeskin at the tip and heel as an homage to Kobe’s nickname — The Black Mamba. Check em out:
I’m not wild about the color scheme, that’s for sure, but I’d love to see a close-up of those babies to check out the snakeskin. Still, some of my favorite footwear comes from Gilbert, specifically his shoe that has a dry erase board on it. Kobe definitely gets a strong nod for rocking snakesin though, no doubt. And credit to Claremont Academy Elementary School and Parkside Elementary Community Academy for the design. Nice going, guys.
